Raymond Ortiz

“Art is very calming.”

Raymond Ortiz, Senior artist

My name is Raymond Ortiz. I am currently a senior and about to graduate. I plan to attend Cal Poly after I am done with High School. This was my only year of taking art and I really wish I had the chance to take it earlier in freshman or sophomore year in order to get the full experience and all the benefits of drawing in class. Throughout this whole year of art, I have enjoyed it all and found it to even be calming while just drawing.
